Yizkor Book Project, February 2014 #bessarabia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Now to facts and figures for February.

Reasons for Conversion to Catholicism, 1938 #galicia

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends,

In one of Galicia's smaller towns, three sisters converted to
Catholicism in August 1938 - on the same day. They were born
between 1910 - 1915 to a butcher. Their five older siblings, born
between 1900 - 1910, did no convert, and three of them married
Jewish partners.

I would appreciate your insight as to possible reasons for the
conversion of the three sisters.

Many thanks,

Orit Lavi

Re: Current Situation in L'viv #galicia

Dear Caroline!

At present the situation in Lviv is steady. All shops, hotels,
restaurants, museums, archives, transport etc are working in their
usual mode. At the streets there are no signs of disorder or
criminality. For sure people are alarmed by the last events in the
Ukraine and especially by the situation in the Krimea, there are
meetings and manifestations. But the atmosphere in general is
the same as usual - just quiet and without hostility.

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, February 2014 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Now to facts and figures for February.

Dear Readers

Many thanks to Jan Allen for informing readers of this valuable new online
resource.

Whilst Wales does not now have a large Jewish population, prior to WW2, it was a
sizable and thriving one. The town in which I was born, Merthyr Tydfil, had a large
and elaborate synagogue founded in 1875; also the only dedicated Jewish cemetery
outside the capital city of Cardiff.

Many Jewish refugees came to Wales, both prior to WW1 to escape the pogroms, and
prior to WW2 to escape the nazis.

For those interested, more information may be found at:

Yizkor Book Project, February 2014 #southafrica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Although February is a notoriously short month, I was pleased to see great
progress made in a number of aspects of the Yizkor Book Project.

To begin with, I am pleased to inform you that during the last month, a
further project joined the ranks of fully completed translations. This time
we saw the culmination of the Grajewo project and I would like to thank the
coordinators, Shelly Levin and Evelyn Fine, for their caring and dedication
in leading this project through its successful completion. On the horizon,
there are a number of other projects that are close to the end and suggest
you follow coming reports for similar announcements.

February also saw the addition of 3 new Translation Funds which have been
set up to allow people interested in financially supporting the professional
translation of the following Yizkor books.

- Ostrów Mazowiecka, Poland
- Sosnove (Ludvipol), Ukraine
- Telsiai (Telz), Lithuania

If you are able to support any of these projects or any of the 75 listed
Translation funds listed here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

you would be doing something very practical and important to allow us to
make these books and the treasures they contain, available to researchers
worldwide and keep the memories of these communities alive.

Lastly, I would like to note our Yizkor Book in Print Project which recently
added a further volume to its continually growing library of English
translations of our Yizkor book projects.

- Shards of Memory: Messages >from the Lost Shtetl of Antopol, Belarus -
Translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of Antopol

In addition, the following book will be available for purchase in the
nearest future:

- Yizkor (Memorial) Book of Lyubcha and Delyatichi - Translation of Lubtch
ve-Delatitch; Sefer Zikaron

As I've noted before, I quite often receive queries regarding available
books and for those of you who are interested, a full list of the published
books appears at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

Now to facts and figures for February.
